My 10 Favourite Apps For My Galaxy Tab A9+

I recently made the switch from an iPad Air to the Galaxy Tab A9+, and the transition has been quite a revelation for me. To provide some context, I’m already an Android phone user (Galaxy Note 10 Lite), so adapting to an Android tablet wasn’t a significant challenge given my existing familiarity with the ecosystem. Nevertheless, I was eager to explore how the Android experience would unfold on a larger device, specifically an 11-inch tablet.

Having used the Tab A9+ as my primary tablet for over a month now, I’ve come to rely on a specific set of 10 apps that have made my overall experience better. In this guide, I’ll share these apps, spanning from entertainment to productivity, with the hope that you might find them useful for your own Android tablet experience. So, without further delay, let’s delve into my top 10 favorite apps for the Galaxy Tab A9+.

1. Brave Browser

Brave Browser is my favorite web browser for Android. It is based on the Chromium open-source project, which means it is fast and secure. What sets Brave apart from other browsers is its built-in ad blocker. This blocker not only removes annoying ads from webpages, but it also helps to speed up browsing and protect your privacy.

In addition to its ad blocker, Brave also has a number of other features that I find useful, such as:

  • Brave Shield: This tab prevents ads on websites but it is to be turned on manually for every website, which is great since not all websites have intrusive ads but I do turn it on for websites that are laced with ads all over. 
  • Private tabs: These tabs hide websites from tracking your browsing activity.
  • Data saver mode: This mode compresses webpages to reduce mobile data usage. It comes in super handy when I use mobile hotspot on the tablet.

The browser also has a built-in VPN feature but sadly it is a paid feature. 

2. Google Keep

Google Keep is my go-to app for taking notes. It is simple to use and syncs across all of my devices, making it easy to access my notes from anywhere. I love that I can create different types of notes, such as text notes, checklists, and drawings. I can also add images and videos to my notes, which is great for capturing ideas or inspiration.

Keep Notes

I usually use Keep as my daily task manager for household tasks or other daily tasks like a reminder for my health checkup or fixing an appointment with a dentist. 

One of my favorite features of Google Keep is the ability to collaborate on notes. This is great for working on projects with others or simply sharing notes with friends and family.

3. Spotify

Spotify is my favorite music streaming service. It has a huge library of music, podcasts, and audiobooks, and I can easily find what I’m looking for using the app’s search function. I can also create custom playlists for different moods or activities.

One of the things I love most about Spotify is the ability to discover new music. The app’s recommendations are usually spot-on, and I’ve found some of my favorite artists through Spotify Discover Weekly playlists.

Spotify works seamlessly on my Galaxy Tab A9+ and as I also pointed out in my first impressions of the tablet, the quad speaker setup does not disappoint at all in quiet surroundings like when I am in my room and put on a podcast while working on my laptop. Of course, you can’t expect a bass boosting experience from tablet speakers, but the Tab A9+ does the needful and the audio experience is good enough. 

4. Netflix

Netflix is my favorite streaming service for watching movies and TV shows. It has a huge library of content, and I can always find something to watch. I love that I can create custom profiles for different members of my family, and that I can download content to watch offline.

One of the things I love most about Netflix is its UI. I think it has the best UI among all the streaming apps. Content-wise, Netflix has produced some of the best shows and movies in recent years, and I’m always excited to see what they come up with next.

With its TFT screen, the Tab A9+ delivers a satisfactory performance. I had a pleasant experience binging on offline downloads of movies on Netflix. While the Tab A9+ lacks the crispness of an AMOLED screen and you feel underwhelmed with the display performance in bright surroundings, indoors you won’t have much to complain about. The tablet also does not overheat during the entire duration of a movie but if you are watching a series, you may want to give a break to your tablet when you reach an ample number of episodes. In my experience, while watching a series with 45 mins of per episode duration, I had to give the Tab A9+ a 30 minute break on reaching the fifth episode.

5. Flipboard

Flipboard is a great app for keeping up with the news and opinion pieces on interesting topics. It curates a personalized feed of articles and videos based on my interests. I can also follow specific topics or people to get a more tailored news feed. For example, I usually follow stories on tech, politics, and football. 

Flipboard

One of the things I love most about Flipboard is the ability to save articles for later reading. This is great for when I don’t have time to read something right away, or when I want to come back to it later. The reading experience on my Tab A9+ was great indoors. I tried flipping out the tablet in the bright surrounding outdoors, but was not very satisfied with the legibility. 

6. Shadow Fight 4

Shadow Fight 4 is a fun and addictive fighting game. It features a variety of characters to choose from, each with their own unique fighting style. The controls are simple to learn, but the game can be challenging to master.

Shadow Fight 4

One of the things I love most about Shadow Fight 4 is the online multiplayer mode. I can challenge players from all over the world to see who is the best fighter. I am in love with this game as it kind of gives me the feel of the late 90s and early 2000s when Tekken games were all the rage. I have had long gaming sessions playing this one on my Tab A9+ and apart from a bit of back panel warming, I didn’t really face any performance glitch. 

If you are into fighting games then give Shadow Fight 4 a try on your tablet.

7. Adobe Lightroom

Adobe Lightroom is a powerful photo editing app that allows me to edit my photos on the go. It has a wide range of features, from basic adjustments like brightness and contrast to more advanced tools like selective editing and noise reduction.

Lightroom

One of the things I love most about Adobe Lightroom is the ability to sync my edits across all of my devices. This means that I can start editing a photo on my phone and then finish it up on my tablet. I like its features like the Portrait mode that turns a normal picture into a pro level creation by a professional photographer. There are also a bunch of advanced features in the app but some of them are paid so you have to get the subscription in order to use them. 

8. All Screen Cast

All Screen Cast is a great app for mirroring my Android screen to my TV or computer. This is great for presentations, gaming, or simply sharing what I’m seeing on my phone with others.

All Screen Cast

One of the things I love most about All Screen Cast is the ability to record my screen. This is great for creating tutorials or presentations. I have a FireTV Stick for my TV and this app makes it a breeze to cast videos from my tablet to TV. It also has a built-in browser where you can search for video sites and directly cast the video to your TV. For the first time users, it may take some time to get around this app but you will become adept after a few days of use. 

9. Trello

Trello is a great app for managing projects and tasks. It uses a Kanban board interface, which makes it easy to visualize your workflow. You can create different boards for different projects, and then add cards to each board for each task. You can also add checklists, due dates, and labels to your cards to keep track of your progress.

Trello

One of the things I love most about Trello is the ability to collaborate with others. You can add team members to your boards and then assign them tasks. You can also use Trello to chat with your team members and share files.

10. Google Home

Google Home is a great app for controlling your smart home devices. You can use it to turn on lights, adjust the thermostat, and control other devices with your voice. The app also integrates with other smart home platforms, such as Amazon Alexa and Apple HomeKit.

Google Home

One of the things I love most about Google Home is the ability to create routines. You can create routines that automate tasks, such as turning on the lights when you come home. You can also use routines to create custom voice commands for your smart home devices.
